TEMPERATURES TOPPING OFF IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 60’S. CLOUDS WILL INCREASE THROUGH THE EVENING AND OVERNIGHT HOURS WITH TEMPERATURES DROPPING INTO THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 50’S AND SHOWERS MOVING IN. HERE IS HOW NEXT WEEK WILL PLAY 60’S. BY THE END OF THIS WET AND UNSETTLED PATTERN, WE WILL HAVE PICKED UP BETWEEN 1-4″ SO FLOODED ROADWAYS COULD BE A CONCERN THROUGH NEXT WEEK AND SOME AREAS COULD PICK UP MORE RAIN DEPENDING ON WHERE HEAVY RAIN FALLS. SEVERE WEATHER DURING THE WEEK IS NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION ANY DAY EITHER. WE WILL END THE WEEK WITH SUNNY CONDITIONS AND TEMPERATURES TOPPING OFF IN THE LOWER 70’S. CHRYSTAL YOU COULD BE VOTING ON MISSOURI’S CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ONE…AGAIN IN 2020. WELCOME TO KOLR TEN NEWS AT TEN – I’M CHRYSTAL BLAIR… MISSOURI LAWMAKERS ARE WANTING TO SEND BACK PARTS OF THE AMENDMENT – ALSO KNOWN AS THE CLEAN MISSOURI AMMENDMENT – FOR YOU TO APPROVE *AGAIN*. LAST NOVEMBER…MISSOURI VOTERS APPROVED THE AMMENDMENT TO THE STATE’S CONSTITUTION…TO QUOTE “CLEAN UP” MISSOURI POLITICS. CHRYSTAL ARE LOOKING TO TEAR DOWN PARTS OF THAT *ALREADY* VOTER APPROVED AMENDMENT. SOME PEOPLE I TALKED WITH SAID LAWMAKERS ARE NOT LISTENING TO THE VOTERS. REAPPORITONING FOR THE MISSOURI LEGISLATURE IS COMING UP SOON AFTER THE 2020 CENSUS. NOW…LAWMAKERS IN THE MISSOURI HOUSE ARE LOOKING TO REPEAL THE VOTER APPROVED AMMENDMENT TO MISSOURI’S CONSTITUTION FOR A NONPARTISAN DEMOGRAPHER TO of the hands of politicians who are so interested and give it to independent citizens.” (DR. DANIEL PONDER / The fact that they’re doing it so quickly before it even takes effect says to me at least that they’re worried about what some of the underlying political consequences would be.” ACCORDING TO MERRIAM AMENDMENT IS APPROVED BY VOTERS, IT WILL LEND POLITICIANS A HAND IN DRAWING DISTRICT LINES – *POSSIBLY* TO THEIR BENEFIT. (Ann Ellwell / “I think that lawmakers don’t necessarily want to change the status quo, the way that the maps are drawn now, they were drawn in secret and not in an open fashion at all and amendment one makes it mandatory that they be drawn and be made public” THE ALREADY VOTER APPROVED AMENDMENT IS SCHEDULED TO TAKE EFFECT WHEN THE RESULTS OF THE 2020 CENSUS it now is because it won’t have actually taken effect.” FOR LAWMAKERS, THIS WOULD KEEP THE STATE AUDITOR, THE ONLY STATEWIDE DEMOCRATIC ELECTED OFFICIAL, FROM HAVING A SAY IN EXAMINING NONPARTISAN DEMOGRAPHER… MISSOURI POLITICIANS SAY THEY’RE NOT WORKING AGAINST MISSOURI VOTERS. (Rep. Dean Plocher / “I think there’s a lot of misnomers here. We’re not overturning the will of the voters at all. In fact, I’m improving, I believe, on amendment one through this process” BUT ANN ELLWELL SAYS ITS IMPORTANT FOR ELECTED OFFICIALS TO LISTEN TO WHAT THE VOTERS WANT. (Ann Ellwell / “In essence, what they’re doing is changing what the voters said they wanted to be in the constitution and that’s not right.” MADISON FOR A MISSOURI CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT PROPOSED IN THE LEGISLATURE, IT HAS TO BE APPROVED BY BOTH THE HOUSE AND SENATE WHERE IT WILL THEN BE SENT TO THE VOTERS FOR APPROVAL.
